Becoming Unstuck

When we are stuck, it means we are shifting/transitioning and we need to do the work to move forward.
Clients will ask: “What is the work?”
It’s asking yourself the right questions depending on the situation.
Sometimes the question is “What the hell am I doing?”
It’s the wake up and stop everything question and really think about what you are doing at this moment. For most, we’re doing the same thing over and over again on repeat and it’s getting us nowhere and we need that eye opener.
It’s much easier to just ignore that question or not even ask it, but then happiness and change doesn’t come.
When we ask the question, notice what comes up both emotionally and physically. Be conscious of your feelings, thoughts, sensations etc. They are clues of what’s going on within us.
Go deeper.
What feelings comes up? What or who angers me? What or who is making me sad? Hurt? Lonely? What has taken away my joy?
Are these feelings that have come up in similar situations before? Are you seeing a pattern? Is this pattern keeping you stuck?
If one year from now you are still in the same pattern, what will your life look like?
How will you feel? How will it affect the people close to you?
What do you need to do to break the pattern?
Remember, none of this works without complete honesty.
Another quick reminder; sometimes you need to look in the mirror. You can be your own worst enemy.

Do the soul searching. Do the work no matter how painful, it’s the only way to grow and change.
Think differently by getting off of autopilot and being more conscious. Be mindful of your choices and actions.
Stepping outside your comfort zone is a must during this time. You can’t get some place new by doing the same thing over and over again.
